By using an extended version of something called the Kraft inequality, which AIT inherited from Shannon information theory! 12 CHAITIN, FROM PHILOSOPHY TO PROGRAM SIZE Occam’s Razor! There Are Few Elegant Programs! But first I want to discuss an important corollary of the crucial theorem H = − log2 P connecting H(x) and P (x). This shows that there cannot be too many small programs for x. In particular, it follows that the number of elegant programs for x is bounded. Also, the number of programs for x whose size is within c bits of H(x) is bounded by a function that depends only on c and not on x.

The scientific programme of EWSCS’03 comprised five courses: • Andris Ambainis (University of Latvia, Riga, Latvia): Quantum Algorithms and Quantum Cryptography • Gregory Chaitin (IBM Research, USA): Algorithmic Information Theory ´ • Patrick Cousot (Ecole Normal Sup´erieure, France): Introduction to Abstract Interpretation • Ivan Damg˚ ard (Aarhus Universitet, Denmark): Theory and Practice of Multiparty Computation • Johan H˚ astad (Kungl. Tekniska H¨ogskolan, Stockholm, Sweden): Probabilistically Checkable Proofs and Inapproximability In addition, there were 10 short talks and 10 posters by the students on their ongoing thesis projects.

It was not at all obvious that this would be symmetric! Again, these two corollaries are identities in Shannon information theory. They justify our whole approach. When I got these results I knew that the definitions I had picked for AIT were finally correct! 8 Complexity of Bit Strings. Examples • High complexity: H(the most complex N -bit strings) = N + H(N ) + O(1) ≈ N + log2 N. In other words, you have to know how many bits there are plus what each bit is. And most N -bit strings have H close to the maximum possible.
